5102Re: Anyone see NBC TV Knight Rider?
- Oct 15, 2008Greetings, All,
Just adding my two cents worth (since I don't do it so often). For
those who aren't able to catch the new "Knight Rider" on Wednesdays,
it's rebroadcast on the following Friday at 7:00 PM on the SciFi
Channel (like they wewre doing with the re-imagined "Bionic Woman" -
which I thought was great... hopefully KR won't fall victim to
another writer's strike like BW did).
Oh, and while the new KITT does seem to be more powerful than his
predecessor, he does have his weaknesses. TransAm KITT had a nearly
indestructable shell, even when he was totally deactivated. Mustang
KITT (at least according to the pilot movie) is impervious as long as
his computer is on line; when deactivated, "... the nano-technology
can't repair the damage without the computer..." meaning he's just as
vulnerable as any other car on the roads.
Also, as shown in recent eposides:
if he transforms while in mid-turbo boost his structural integrity is
compromised and when he lands it can blow something that causes
if he is subject to intense fire at close range (in this case a .50
cal machine gun with explosive rounds) it puts a strain on the nano-
technology repairing the damage and prolonged exposure to such fire
can cause severe (alluded to possible permanent) damage.
I'm sure as the series progresses we'll be introduced to more
weaknesses, which admittedly adds to the tension and suspense, and
keeps things lively.
